It's time for challenge #3 over at the CASE-ing Christmas challenge blog. I have to admit, I'm really happy that I'm on this DT. It has renewed my crafty mojo, and I am building up my Christmas card stash, just like I wanted. Here is this weeks card that we were to CASE. It was created by Judy. Isn't it fun?
And here is my card.
For this card, I also chose to use the layout. I changed up the colors, and am quite pleased at how it turned out. I love the non-traditional look of the light blue with the red, set against the pop of black. I realized something while creating this card. I have a new love affair with wet embossing. I'm not sure why I hadn't really used it much. It's so cool! The tree on my card was embossed in silver, and then I added a few gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Instead of a greeting, I added some luscious red chevron twill ribbon from Pretty Pink Posh as well. I am going to submit my card for the following challenges.

I do hope you'll head over to the challenge blog to see what everyone has created for you today. Hopefully, something will inspire you to create a card, and join in the fun this week. I hope to be back soon, with another card.
Have a wonderful weekend!
